The news that A$AP Rocky had been arrested in Sweden had Longitude fans worried for days, and now the news has been confirmed that the US rapper will not headline the festival tonight.
He was set to headline the main stage at the summer festival in Marlay Park but was detained by Swedish authorities in relation to an alleged assault last weekend.
The star was arrested after a gig at the Smash festival in Stockholm on Tuesday, and police are stating that four people were initially arrested.
Three of these people were suspected of serious abuse and one of assault, but the person suspected of assault was released two days ago and is no longer a suspect.
It is rumoured that the altercation began as a result of the men seemingly following A$AP Rocky in the street and of inappropriately touching women.
His replacement on the main stage at Longitude has been announced as rapper Ski Mask The Slump God.
Longitude is also being headlined by Stormzy and Cardi B, with Wild Youth and Anne Marie also performing over the course of the weekend.
Chance the Rapper was also originally a headliner, but cancelled recently to much fan disappointment.
Thousands will attend the festival over the next three days, with the gates opening from 1.30pm.
